Tweets of the game: Penn State vs Illinois

There was no shortage of storylines in Penn State's 35-7 win against Illinois on Saturday. From backstory (Illinois coaches recruiting Penn State players this offseason) to implications (the Nittany Lions looking for an improbably Big Ten Leaders Division title) to pure entertainment (Mike Mauti's incredible performance) the game seemed to have it all. 

Here are some of the best Tweets posted during and after the game from current, future and former Nittany Lions:

Cornerback Stephon Morris (@Morris12island): It wasn't business, it was personal. Anyways on our way back to PSU with our first #B1G win. We Are dedicated to restoring the roar!

2013 quarterback commit Christian Hackenberg (@Chackenberg1): And Penn State got that win. #WEARE
